It’s Top Pick Tuesday and I couldn’t be more excited about this week’s top pick.
This product and brand is a favorite of both Christine and mine. We both love it for the same reasons and we hope that you love it too!
The product: Dry Shampoo
I have alway had the type of hair that I had to wash every single day. This was something that I never loved but I got used to over the years. I was first introduced to dry shampoo on a camping trip. I love to camp but the “no shower factor” was always an issue for me. I would generally bring a baseball cap or hat of some sort to cover up and still look/feel presentable for day two. So one weekend I went camping with a group of friends armed with a hat for my second day look. Saturday morning one of the girls disappeared for a few minutes to change and get ready for the day. She emerged from the tent looking so fresh! She was holding this can and said, “hey does anyone want to use my dry shampoo”? I was flabbergasted! Dry shampoo? Sign me up! I played around with a few brands over the years, some cheap some expensive, and settled on one in particular-which was introduced to me by another friend!
The brand: Batiste
They have so many different options to choose from! You can pick one that smells nice, blends in with brown or blonde hair, helps nourish your hair, or gives you some extra volume. I’ve only used the original but I am very excited to try the rest.
It’s so easy to use too! You separate your hair into thirds by exposing your scalp, spray on the roots, let it sit for 1-2 minutes, and then brush your hair like normal.
This brand in particular stands out because it’s very affordable and really works! I have used other brands that are more expensive and have been less impressed. I have also noticed that the ones less expensive seem to wear off as your day goes on. With Batiste it lasts all day and I have even been tempted to go a third day. I haven’t tested my luck with this temptation, but just might have too if I find myself in a time crunch…or a Saturday where I don’t have to go anywhere.
The other big ah-ha about this product is that it can help you when styling your hair. I have a lot of thin and fine hair which means it doesn’t hold a curl for very long and it tends to lay very flat on my head…but dry shampoo helps with it! Spray it in your hair like my above directions illustrate and go about styling however you choose. It gives your hair more texture which increases its workability for up-dos or curls.
Like I said this is Christine and my favorite and we hope you love it as well!
